British Champs! What a crazy day!Somehow I managed to get on the podium and get third place! After some unfortunate last minute changes to the entry list I knew this was a possibility. I had a terrible start on squats. Had all red lighted 2-1 on depth only to be overturned by the judges on the third. Went 240, 250, 250kg which was 15kg down on what I was targeting and 10kg down on last comp. Shit happens, this will be looked at for the next one. Moving on. Bench and deadlift went exactly to plan 190, 202.5, 210 (10kg PB) and 285, 305, 315 (5kg PB). Finished on 775kg (5kg PB) bw124.8kg (lightest in class) 441.75wilks. Not what I wanted but happy with the PB's. 450+ wilks and 800kg+ will happen at my next full comp!!! Operation poverty squat is on for next year!
